Go to your internet explorer or firefox what ever you are using, find the document you just downloaded, then righ click on it, click on show in finder, then you will find the document you just downloaded, and change the name on it, for example put coversheet.pdf just make sure to put the .pdf at the end, then you will be able to open it on any pdf software.

Thanks for the quick reply George. But i did locate the file on the finder but when i click it, there's no " change name or edit name or something" options. i only see, compress, burn, duplicate, make alias, quick look, make copy options. i tried the make Alias and change the name to .pdf, but when i tried opening it, and it still in the .cfm form and would ask for an app to open it. Am i doin somethin wrong? thanks a lot again.

To change the name in a mac give the document 1 click, then go to the left upper side of your screen go to file, then get file info, then when a window opens in the lower part you will be able to change the name.

The other option is to click the document 3 times and lets you change the name.

good luck
